A number of architecturally historic buildings reside along Wilshire Boulevard, many of which don't serve their original purposes anymore, having been converted into restaurants, boutiques, or office supply stores. One such example is the newly remodeled Metro Customer Center on Wilshire.

Housed in an understated yet elegant building originally designed by Welton Beckett's firm, Metro Customer Center functions as an information and pass distribution center as well as the Lost and Found for the entire Metro system. Beckett's studio engineered some of the city's most admired and culturally valued structures such as Capitol Records' Hollywood headquarters, the Pan Pacific Auditorium, and the Cinerama Dome at the Arclight Theaters.
